you might find this interesting if you want some Buckfast that aren't from texas, if you want the real thing , read this below and see if you can get with them and get a few, here is a message a friend sent me about them...... I am getting 5-10 , they will probably cost around 25-30 bucks each maybe a little less but thats what I was told to expect
Hi, Ted, this guy Mr. Ferguson from Canada is great to deal with. We ended up putting everybody's order together to get to 100 queens. He has to drive them to the border with all the paperwork since last year they were held up at the border until they were all dead! When he gets them across the line, he goes to a UPS store & ships them overnight.
The good news is, we have invited him to come on Saturday, July 12th, 2008 to speak at the Heartland Apiculture Society meeting [www.heartlandbees.com] in Huntington, WV at Marshall University.
He is bringing as many Buckfast queens as we want with him for sale. If you are coming up here to the meeting, we can let him know how many you want [or even just one if that's all you want to have].
I hope that helps. I have only had these Buckfast since last July but they seem to be good bees. There are only 3 breeders who have the original stock now that Brother Adam is dead and Buckfast Abbey has stopped producing them. Ferguson is one of the remaining breeders of the pure Buckfast.
